Penalties for DUI with Injury in Pasadena

There are various issues that will determine whether you are facing misdemeanor or felony charges, including the degree of the injuries in the accident, as well as your criminal record. A third DUI with injury will be filed as a felony charge. A first time charge may be able to be negotiated to a misdemeanor, based upon the facts of the case.

In misdemeanor charges, a conviction could lead to the following penalties:

  • 5 days to 1 year in jail
  • Fines as high as $5,000
  • A court-mandated alcohol or drug treatment program that could extend as long as 30 months
  • Driver's license suspension up to 3 years
  • You will be forced to pay restitution
  • Up to 5 years probation

For a felony conviction of DUI with injury, the penalties are far more severe, including up to 6 years in state prison, up to $5,000 in fines, alcohol treatment for up to 30 months, and a 5 year revocation of your California driver's license.
